If you go down to the woods today

You're sure of a big surprise

If you go down to the woods today

You better go in disguise

For every bear that ever there was

Will gather there for certain because

Today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic

Every teddy bear whose been good

Is sure of a treat today

There's lots of marvelous things to eat

And wonderful games to play

Beneath the trees, where nobody sees

They'll hide and seek as long as they please

'Cause that's the way the teddy bears have their picnic

Picnic time for teddy bears

The little teddy bears are having a lovely time today

Watch them, catch them unawares

And see them picnic on their holiday

See them gaily gad about

They love, to play and shout, they never have any cares

At six o'clock their mommies and daddies

Will take them home to bed

Because they're tired little teddy bears

If you go down in the woods today

You better not go alone

It's lovely down in the woods today

But safer to stay at home

For every bear that ever there was

Will gather there together because

Today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic

Today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic

If you go out in the woods today

You're sure of a big surprise.

If you go out in the woods today

You'd better go in disguise.

For every bear that ever there was

Will gather there for certain, because

Picnic time for teddy bears,

The little teddy bears are having a lovely time today.

Watch them, catch them unawares,

And see them picnic on their holiday.

See them gaily dance about.

They love to play and shout.

And never have any cares.

At six o'clock their mommies and daddies

Will take them home to bed

Because they're tired little teddy bears.

If you go out in the woods today,

Every teddy bear, that's been good

Is sure of a treat today

There's lots of wonderful things to eat

The Teddy Bears' Picnic is a song written by John Walter Bratton in (1907), with lyrics added in 1932 by prolific songwriter Jimmy Kennedy, and is still a popular tune recorded by several artists and appearing in many children's recordings.

The song was recorded in the United Kingdom in 1932 by Henry Hall and His Orchestra EMI SH 172, with Val Rosing singing. The Hall rendition is perhaps the most well-known in the UK and was featured in the Dennis Potter drama The Singing Detective. The song has since been recorded by several singers including Bing Crosby, Frank DeVol, Rosemary Clooney, Dave Van Ronk, Jerry Garcia, John Inman, Trout Fishing in America, and Anne Murray.

The piece was also popular as a theme song or background music in various films and programs:

The instrumental version appears briefly in the musical score to accompany Buster Keaton's silent film The General. It was also frequently used as background music in Looney Toons.

In the late 1940s and early 1950s it was used as the theme song for the Big Jon and Sparkie radio program, a children's show presented on weekdays and Saturday mornings. This version used was performed by organist Ethel Smith. The Saturday Show was later named "No School Today".

The song features prominently in Peter Greenaway's film A Zed & Two Noughts, and is sung by characters in the film.

The song is also featured in the CGI movie Open Season where Boog's teddy bear plays the melody when its string is pulled, and the words are recited by various character throughout the film.

The song appears briefly in the film version of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

The song is featured in the third episode of The Young Ones,entitled "Boring". When the roommates are away at the pub, various inanimate objects in the flat come to life. The song plays as a young girl enters the flat and tastes all three bowls of food that sit on the table.

The Song serves as the theme song for the Commodore 64 game "The Hunchback", by Ocean, and for the BBC Micro game "Nemesis" by Micro Power.

In November 2005 a commercial for the Xbox game console featured the Henry Hall/Val Rosing version as the primary soundtrack.

The background music of Gruntilda's Lair in Banjo-Kazooie is also based on this song.

In an episode of The Simpsons, Bart recites part of the lyrics in Moe's bar.
